Dolan Memory Care Homes’ leadership team is comprised of highly experienced professionals who are committed to providing the highest quality of life for our Residents and their families.
Tim Dolan – Owner/President
In 1999, Dolan Residential Care, as his young company was formerly known, was chosen as one of only 2 facilities in the St. Louis area to participate in the State’s Alzheimer’s Pilot Program to investigate and develop new environments and care techniques for Missourians affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. He developed 3 state-of-the-art households, which included numerous environmental design features that innovatively attended to the needs of cognitively impaired individuals.
In 2006, Tim’s effort in the field was instrumental in helping to change the licensure regulations in Missouri. Senate Bill 616 was introduced, passed and later signed by the Governor providing Missouri families with an array of long-term care choices, which allowed individuals to age in place in their community without making a pathway to safety in an emergency.
In 2010, Tim was chosen to be a member of the Missouri State Alzheimer’s Task Force representing the long-term care in the state by the Governor. Other task force members included Dr. John Morris; Margret Donnelly, Director of Missouri Health and Senior Services; Senator Bill Stouffer, sponsor of Senate Bill 616; and Carol Rodriguez from the Alzheimer’s Association.
In 2014 Tim completed Les Maison a memory neighborhood. Les Maison is the first of its kind development, consisting of four homes specifically built to accommodate those with various forms of memory impairment. Tim envisions another memory neighborhood, Waterford Crossing, with six homes to open in 2018.

“Whenever I visit the Residents at their homes, they are always so welcoming and so appreciative that I have come to visit them. I love the stories they tell me and learning so much about them. I love working on new projects with them and going out to lunch with them. Every day is always a new day!! Although I am supposed to be going to visit to make their day special, they always end up making my day special too!”
Allison Dolan-Boschert, BSN, RN – Nurse Consultant
Allison has earned a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and Chemistry from Mizzou, and her Bachelor of Nursing at Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes Jewish College. Currently, she is pursuing a master’s degree as an adult nurse practitioner.
Tracey Ray, RN, LNHA – Nurse Manager
I worked as a CNA on the Alzheimer’s unit until I graduated from nursing school in 1996. By 2004, I was certified in Legal Nurse Consulting, but my passion remained with the elderly. Other work experience includes 4 years at St. Anthony’s emergency room and the medical / surgical floor. I also was a fiduciary specialist for Bank of America Private Trust working with individuals who were receiving HomeCare.
I came to Dolan in 2012 and immediately fell in love with the small group residential settings. I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of life for residents and families who are affected by dementia. Being a nurse at Dolan Memory Care Homes give me great joy in the care I provide.
Mary Kate Halm, LMSW – Family Support Coordinator
Britney Burkart, MSW – Family Support Coordinator
When ask about working at Dolan Britney said, “When I come to work each day, I feel at home. The love and joy the Residents and staff bring is unconditional. My favorite part is getting to learn all the details, both big and small, about what makes each resident who they are. Having the privilege of being a part of their lives and learning their stories is a great blessing! All of my family lives in Illinois, but I found my St. Louis family at Dolan.”
